Quote BigBluePlate: These writers just don't get Shadam. Even if they could get their act together and bring these two back in each other's orbits, could we ever really trust them to deliver the Shadam magic? They thought it was all about the sex, so gave us some fwb scenes to appease the fans, and that was not enough as there's so much more to Adam and Sharon's love for one another than sex. Shadam was passion, obsession, lies, betrayal, friendship, trust, and a deep and abiding love for one another, in spite of their past. They were the epitome of star-crossed, forbidden, romantic love. Perhaps the magic that was Shadam was ultimately a happy
accident. TP played with the ball of fire until they didn't see what else they could do with it except to extinguish it. So can Shadam rise again from the ashes? I've got my fingers crossed!
Excellent post. I don't think these writers know how to write romance or romantic scenes at all. I see none of it. And when it comes to Shadam they were a BIG FAT ZERO. All those things you mentioned about love, passion etc.... That was Shadam. MAB was a nut job when it came to her story lines, but she wrote beautifully for Shadam and the dialogue was beautiful right up until the whole Shictor and Chadam fiasco they were still not over each other, just by they way they would look at one another when one of them walked into a room.
I miss those times.
Me, too. But if MAB was the force behind the Shadam magic, why would she do something so appallingly stupid as Shictor? If it ain't broke, why fix it? Sharon may never recover fron that fiasco. It's one thing for a woman to be torn between two brothers. It 's another thing altogether when the same woman marries and supposedly sleeps with her former father-in-law, the man she always viewed as a father figure. I'm getting disgusted just typing this--LOL! But I have to wonder--is MM and SC keeping Shadam alive, and if so, do TP see that? Are they being punished for it-- is that why we so rarely see them together now? Hope they're just on summer break and TP do a quick 180 again and bring back our Shadam and save our soap. No fwb and/or sporadic scenes will do. We want the full meal deal, thank you!
I think as it was posted several times before, Shadam was the brain child of MM and SC and they proposed it to MAB who okayed it. I don't think she thought Shadam would be a big hit. But she rode on the coattails of Adam and Sharon.
Sictor was EB's idea. I guess he wanted to make Victor more young by
having Sharon in a triangle with Nikki.
And yes, I truly believe MM and SC are keeping Shadam alive through their amazing acting and chemistry.
CG, I wouldn't put too much stock in what all has been posted about how Shadam began. I remember reading in some soap rag that MAB and SC went to MM's house to convince him to return to the show. Even MM thought Adam had gone too far, but thank goodness they convinced him
to return. Now is any of this true? Who knows? I also doubt that EB was
fully behind the Shictor mess, as even he looked uncomfortable in their scenes together. I have to wonder if JG had a larger role in all of this--he
seemed to think the greater the controversy, the better. Maybe MAB felt
that way as well, which is why she was deservedly ousted. But why let JG
stay on? I just wish TP would stop trying to rewrite Shadam history. WE
KNOW WHAT WE SAW AND IT WAS GOOD. I will never accept that Adam
feels more for Chels than Sharon, no matter what comes out of his
mouth or how mopey he gets. Adam needs a family, and sees Chels as
the mother of his children. Why he sees her in the mother role and not
Sharon is beyond me. And if Adam sees Chels as his one great love, why
isn't he fighting for her? Why not tell her he's willing to raise the baby
even if he's not the father? That's what a real man would do. Not this
OOC Adam who is so desperate to keep his daddy's love he gave up the ONLY woman who loved him unconditionally: Sharon!
